Alright so I spent about an hour reserching this before I left - I found a 8-9 sites telling me pine trees were perfectly ok for budiges to use as perches as well as dogwood. My dad and I went out into the woods and I am over run with scratches from thorns, and bug bites. But I got some really nice, oddly shaped pieces of wood for Cosmo. It was all freshly cut meaning the pine still has sap in it. There was nothing but straight boring pieces on the ground. So I just searched a little bit more about pine trees, specifically the sap. I now found 2-3 sites telling me ALL pine is toxic, the branches, twigs, leaves, needles and sap. Does anyone else use pine branches for the budiges? I know there are pine perches you buy, so that sore of confuses me, sense it says ALL pine is bad. I'm really confused! Did I just get all battered up for nothing? Could one of the vets maybe give me a straight answer?
Same to the dogwood, I havent searched that up yet but for a definate answer from a vet, is it ok?
